Harting has developed a new ethernet switch that enables the implementation of individually tailored plug & play network solutions for data-intensive applications.
Imaging processes have become ever more important in all industry segments. From quality inspection within a production facility to road traffic identification, image processing supports the frictionless progress of daily businesses. However, while the quality of images has increasing significantly in recent years, the capability of network devices for industrial environments has grown rather more slowly.
The new Harting Ha-VIS eCon unmanaged 16-port gigabit switch addresses this challenge by offering the necessary performance to cover the demands of processing several high-quality images and streams in parallel throughout the network.
Because of their volatile nature, live imaging or streaming processes are performed without network reliability mechanisms. The reason is that images and data streams must be transferred to the receiver without delay, or the transfer makes no sense at all. To secure the correct delivery of large data streams, the Ha-VIS eCon 3160GX-A-A switch supports Jumbo Frames. These are Ethernet frames which improve performance on local networks by making data transmissions more efficient.
